This scenic, single-lap half marathon is set in the glorious countryside surrounding Woking and Guildford, and follows a fully-closed and professionally marked and measured route out from Woking town into the rural delights of the nearby quaint villages.

Good Neighbourhood Schemes – Can you help?



No two Good Neighbours schemes areidentical but the intention is broadly similar in every case. Namely, to offer the practical help that can make all the difference to our elderly, disabledand housebound clients, often this is due to family members living too far awayto help. Good Neighbours schemes provide help like transport to doctor’sappointments, hospital, social events. There is no regular commitment, you willbe offered trips by telephone and are free to choose which to accept.

These schemes need volunteers urgently.CAN YOU HELP? You will need to live in the area you coveras each scheme is covered by their postcodes.

Below is a list of the Woking andsurrounding area Good Neighbourhood schemes.

Are you able to spare a few hours eachweek. Own car required and a current clean driving licence is required.Expenses are paid.

Doug from Mayford becamea client of Neighbourly Help Around Mayford when health issues meant that hecould no longer drive. Doug says: “My wife is in a nursing home and one of thevolunteer drivers takes me to see her once a week. Without that support Ireally wouldn’t see her very often. My daughters don’t live nearby and it’s acomfort to them to know that I can still see their Mum.”

Wendy is a volunteerdriver for Neighbourly Help Around Mayford and helps local people like Doug toget out and about. “I can’t stand not being busy” she says. “Once mygrandchildren started to go to school, I needed something else to do. It’sgreat to know that I can help Doug to stay in contact with his wife or just popsomeone to the doctor’s. Those small trips make such a big difference.”

Becoming a volunteerdriver is easy and volunteers can give as much or as little time as theychoose, as well as decide the days and times during which they are available.
